Fame Dance Workout (2010/Lionsgate DVD)


Picture: C+     Sound: C+     Extras: D     Main Program: C-



If remaking the 1980 hit film was not bad enough an idea, Now to try and drum up new fans for the hopeless remake of Fame (2009), we now have the Fame Dance Workout (2010) where we are learning dance steps form the film, yet also supposed to lose weight doing them.  After an awkward introduction, we get the 74 minutes in chapterized form and four sections.


Of course, we are also supposed to go see the movie we missed and forget we had many good reasons to do so in the first place, save poor critics like…


Odder still, stars Kristy Flores, Kherington Payne and Paul McGill show up only under their first name on the packaging as if we are in The Mickey Mouse Club.  It is very condescending and shallow.  Fortunately, they are not and prove that without any flash or overkill, they were appealing enough to be in such a film, but that film was so butchered and mauled that they do not get the chance they do here to be themselves.


Either way, it is a curio for the workout crowd, but should be skipped otherwise.


The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image was shot in HD video and looks just fine, though it is likely 1080i and only so good. Color is not bad.  The Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo is the norm for such a release and is also not bad.  There are no extras.
